The animation in the short film, Ma'ii, is incredibly beautiful and distinct. The storyline follows an orphan coyote that travels with the guidance of a mysterious spirit.

I like the way the story is told. Even though it's short, it's simple and engaging. The cinematography quite well done. The locations are very beautiful and stylized. The music and sound effects are very distinct and noticeable. It has a really unique style that stands out a lot.

The message of the story is that someone will always be there to guide you. You should be aware that it does contain some implied violence when Ma'ii eats a rabbit off screen. You don't see it, but you hear the sounds.

I give Ma'ii 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 10 to 18. Reviewed by Calista B., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Ma'ii is a folk tale, inspired by Navajo Culture, about how Coyotes first formed packs. It follows the life of a young cub, Ma'ii, as he braves the world on his own, until the day a mysterious spirit greets him.
